City's Next Euro Destination: FC Matalan

City's Next Euro Destination: FC Matalan

This afternoon in Nyon, City have been drawn to face FC Midtjylland of Denmark in the UEFA Cup Second Qualifying Round..

Regardless of the nickname we have just given them, this could be a tougher assignment than we might initially think. Having tonked Bangor 10-1 on aggregate in the first qualifying round and currently 3rd in the Danish top flight, they look well organised: www.fcm.dk

Courtesy Wikipedia:
FC Midtjylland is a Danish football team from Herning and Ikast. The team is a result of a merger between Ikast FS (which also includes tennis, badminton and handball clubs) and Herning Fremad. Currently FC Midtjylland play in the Danish Superliga.

FC Midtjylland play in a new stadium, SAS Arena, which Messecenter Herning owns.

Up to the spring season 2007, FC Midtjylland was put in a bad light because they made deals with pupils from African countries to play and study at their football academy - Denmarks first of its kind. The club management's defence was: 'They study and play football when they do not study'. 'We abide by all rules from DBU as well as government, with regards to football and player trafficking'.

FC Midtjylland is trying to secure its current status as a challenger to the national football throne of Br√łndby IF and F.C. Copenhagen

The ties will be played the Thursdays 14th and 28th August.

It least they might make a few forays into our half giving us a better chance of opening them up for our prolific strikers !!!

I don't think Midtjylland are anyone's mugs, that's for sure. City will have to be on their guard.

Dont know much about these guys but, same as the last round, progression is the only concern.

God help you if you're worried about this lot. You could get AC Milan in the next round!

We're not worried sm - just cautious. There's a difference!! We've been here before with City after all - Groclin for example!
